Publisher's Summary

As Flex, his niece Trina, Gem, Hemp and Charlie brave the wild world teeming with the walking dead, they make up the rules as they go along. Flex Sheridan was an electrician before the world took a nasty turn; Gem, an artist. Hemp is a scientist who specializes in epidemics and also carries in his bag of tricks a mechanical engineering degree. Charlie is a metal and punk rocker in her mid-twenties who has learned how to take out two zombies at once with her crossbow. Each one of them has their own story. This one is Gem's chronicle.

They know they need to stay safe. But they also know that to hole up and hide away is to allow the creatures who crave human flesh to walk the world forever.

Join with them as they struggle to balance their natural tendencies toward self-preservation with their strong desire to rid the world of the zombie scourge. Our band of machine gun-toting nomads moves from place to place in fortified vehicles, keeping their eyes peeled for survivors, and zombie battles ensue at nearly every turn. But this is not a world where love dies. This is a moment in history when human connections and things of beauty are more important than ever; things to be embraced and held onto with everything you've got. So hop in the Crown Victoria with the ballistic steel body and the swiveling AK-47 on the top, and hang on to your seat as Gem powers the car through hoards of zombies and gets her precious Trina and Flex where they need to be.

Learn what Hemp and Charlie discover in the lab - a huge clue to what caused the epidemic that has 90% of the world hunting the rest. But after you meet this group, you'll begin to wonder: Who are the hunters, and who are the hunted?

    "Enjoying the story and characters"

    The story continues and this time is told from Gems perspective. I like how this book explains the pseudo science behind zombieism as Shelman creates his own flavour of zombie. Its well thought out and suspends disbelief.

    Nothing especially emotionally compelling or extreme action and horror but I just enjoy reading what they're doing, how their characters are and their interactions. Sometimes books can try to take drastic turns for cheap thrills, which you really don't like. This story is pretty safe.

    The group picks up the people at the CDC, hold up somewhere while Hemp researches about zombies and takes off again with a goal in mind once they a new way to fight the zombies.

    The sound quality continues to be sub par. I've never been particularly sensitive to sound but I think its easy to hear the difference between the sample in this recording and samples from other books. Like some evil aura, there is a hollowness and raspiness around the narrators words when he speaks.

    The narrator is otherwise rather good I think. At first you think he can't even read because its so halting like he cant read ahead. But I think thats how Gem is supposed to be because when he says lines for other characters its no problem at all. Neither does he try to take on a female voice like many others who end up sounding like transvestites. Not an over actor, inflection is good and voice comfortable to listen to.

    I'll continue investing in the series.
